Production History

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Box Office

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company originally was incorporated under the name Fahrenheit Theatre Company. Beginning with a small grant in 1993, a group of young theater artists founded the FTC with the mission of producing Shakespeare and the classics for modern audiences. FTC produced five plays in its first season in various local venues, beginning with Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew at Gabriel’s Corner in Over-the-Rhine. Since that time, the Company has enjoyed rapid artistic growth, a loyal audience base, and critical acclaim.

In 2014, with their production of The Two Noble Kinsmen, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company became one of the first 5 theaters in the United States to complete the canon. Learn more about those productions online here.
